Kate Ollerenshaw: More Haste, Less Speed: Sunset Clauses in the Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill – UK Constitutional Law Association

Posted October 11th, 2022 in brexit, constitutional law, EC law, news, regulations, statute law revision by tracey

‘There are many points of note for those interested in Constitutional law in the recently published Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill 2022 (“the Bill”). This post focuses on the proposal to bind the Government to accomplishing the complex process of assimilating desirable retained EU law into domestic legislation before a stated deadline using the sunsetting provisions in clauses 1 and 3 of the Bill. It asks why sunsetting is needed, suggesting the motivation lies, at least in part, in the Government’s desire to reap the so-called “Brexit dividend” by reducing the burden of regulation from EU-derived measures as quickly as possible. It goes on to question whether the sunset clauses will ultimately assist in that aim.’

Mike Gordon: The Prime Minister, the Parties, and the Ministerial Code – UK Constitutional Law Association

‘The current Prime Minister’s long running battle with the Seven Principles of Public Life continues to gather pace. Boris Johnson’s actions relating to the pandemic “partygate” scandal have arguably violated each of the principles established by the Nolan Committee in 1995: selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty and leadership. The Prime Minister’s full house of ethical violations concerning his attendance and subsequent denials of social gatherings held in Downing Street, contrary to lockdown restrictions, have also yielded Fixed Penalty Notices from the police for him, his Chancellor, his wife, and other government officials, with the prospect of more to follow. Yet the Prime Minister remains committed to staying in post, and has refused to resign.’
